Take a look at these...

Both broken by guys who weigh less than 150 pounds, the one guy suffered a compound fx and pierced arm...OUCH.

One is a Sibex and one an AXCD...quality construction?

These are now on ebay...




:o


Dont trust them if thats what they do to ya...

Read the MTBR thread and even though some people think they are ok - too much of a risk really. They do seem very very very lightweight....

Back to the SIDS unless Rody can build me up a custom fork ;)
